Fearless Firing: Constructing a Strong Legal Defense for Your Termination Decisions


This course, has been approved for 1.5 HR (General) recertification credit hours toward aPHR™, PHR®, PHRca®, SPHR®, GPHR®, PHRi™ and SPHRi™ recertification through HR Certification Institute® (HRCI®).


Employers have always avoided the termination either because it is not easy to terminate someone or because it can be difficult to defend any allegations of wrongful termination. Cases of wrongful termination have emerged and increased since the late 2000 year.

Employers need to be aware of the cost of these actions via litigation, fines & penalties and even criminal sanctions. Employers need to ask if they have the protections they need when they make decisions on termination, reduction in force, demotion, suspensions and disciplinary actions.

Course Objectives:

• Learn how employees should be terminated with dignity respect and within regulations
• Learn how to mitigate wrongful termination allegations before they happen
• Create a termination checklist that will reduce your risk when making a decision to terminate
• Gain knowledge of the EEOC regulations and guidelines to prevent allegations of discrimination or wrongful termination
• Create a policy that will assist managers in terminating employees without fear of retribution from the regulatory agencies and employees
• Use training of your managers to reduce your risk since you can be held liable for Managers/Supervisors with bad management and poor judgment in handling employees
• Teach Managers how to document performance issues in preparation for termination
• Develop a termination process that will ensure consistency, fairness, objectivity and reduce risks
• Learn what factors can be an obstacle in ensuring a worry free termination process
• Learn how to handle volatile terminations including employees who own weapons, have history of aggressive behavior, domestic violence, sexual assault or stalking, harassment, mental illness and other behavior issues that can pose a risk to Managers and employees
• Learn how Retaliation regulations need to be addressed before terminating an employee

Why Should You Attend:

Research has identified the following factors in this increase:

• Employees more aware and knowledgeable of the workplace rights
• Employees taking chances in making "a killing" by charging discrimination
• Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) establishing increased awareness on how employees can make these charges
• New whistleblower protections for employees who turn in Employers
• More resources on websites by Department of Labor (DOL) providing employees with ways to confirm if Employers are violating current regulations

Because of these and other factors, Employers are now more than ever, at risk of litigation against termination decisions. The EEOC has established definitions and guidelines of what constitutes discrimination and what employees are part of "protected classes" and discrimination claims. Now that there have been additional protections under EEOC, Employers should consider these regulations and prepare for those potential Risks.
